What do you love about teaching? 

There is something so special about coming together, in community. I am inspired by the experiences that unfold as we explore the sometimes-challenges of movement & stillness within the practice. The beautiful opportunity to connect to our own individual bodies, and the power of our breath; I hope to create the space to allow each of us to listen in and hear our true inner voice… and to just have some joy & fun!

What yoga trainings have you completed?

I completed my Modo Level 1 training in Brazil, Modo Flow in Kelowna, and Modo Advanced & Yin in Costa Rica. I’ve also done trainings in Chair Yoga, All Body’s/Curvy Yoga, Breathwork, Trauma Informed Yoga, Anti-Oppression work, and Anti-Racism Response Training (A.R.T.)

What Modo Pillar do you connect with the most?

Be Accessible – I feel like its an envelope for all the pillars. “A place for all” builds community, which creates deeper connection to others and the planet. Through this connection we can learn and support each other which flows into more wellbeing collectively.

What do you do besides teaching yoga?

I feel very fortunate for the work I get to do… at the studio and as an ASL Interpreter, which I love! Outside of work, I enjoy listening to music, podcasts, being in nature, around water whether it’s the ocean or long bath. I also have an amazing family & friends in my life so time with them is well spent.

What’s your favourite after yoga treat?

How do you pick just one!?! For yummy Mexican food Sal y Limon & Los Cuervos, or if I feel like a cozy dinner Les Faux Bourgeois.
